If you have room in your refrigerator, brine the turkey this afternoon, dry it off, and leave it uncovered in the refrigerator overnight (at least 8 hours). Roasting an air-dried turkey makes for exceptionally crisp skin.

Make and refrigerate pumpkin or other custard pies.
Peel and store potatoes, covered in cold water, in the refrigerator.
